World’s largest indoor R&D farm

On High Tech Campus Eindhoven you find world’s largest indoor R&D farming facility owned by Signify. It is solely dedicated to research and development of techniques for optimal indoor food production. A cultivation process that involves growing crops in small interior areas, using multiple layers to maximize production. Ground-breaking LEDs make this possible by providing the optimal light spectrum for indoor growth.

Growing plant in a controlled environment near to consumers

In a vertical farm, crops are grown in climate-controlled rooms under artificial light, giving ‘farmers’ a great deal of control over growing conditions. Crops use significantly less water and are not affected by unpredictable weather. Plants grow in a controlled environment: clean air, no pesticide, all year round. Moreover, city farms are located in densely populated areas which require fewer logistics.

World’s second agri-food country

The Netherlands is small in size but great in output when it comes to food. We are the world’s second AgriFood country when it comes to export -right after the US. Brainport Eindhoven has been a front-runner in lighting for horticulture for over 75 years. We work together with policy makers, scientists and high-tech farmers from around the globe to create the perfect blueprint for city farming facilities.
